Why should you be mad because your ex found a better replacement?

  /   in Woman   /   Comments

romance

When a relationship breaks, and all the accusations have subsided, you might feel some sort of relief. For one ting, it would now be obvious your ex is no longer the love of your life nor is he your soul-mate. For another, you no longer have to put up with his spending hours in front of the telly watching boring football whilst you get infuriated to the point of throttling him. Peace at last, you sigh. No more tantrums in restaurant and no petty rows at parties because other men flirted with you. You’re basking in this euphoria when you get a big jolt – you find yourself face-to-face with your replacement. All the good work you’ve done over the months trying to get over him is now out of the window. He might not be good enough for you, but why should he be attracted to someone else?

Your heart races, it feels like a huge bowl of eba is lodged in your stomach and your mind starts working overtime. Why is he doing this? You’ve been a loyal and supportive wife, after al. He’s got a lovely home and children who adore him. What more does he want?
